5:07 pm
floated by sean spicer that is making news. what is in the works as a plan but not definitive is an idea to go ahead and add a border tax for products going across the border from mexico to the united states. $50 billion worth of commerce takes place there. what spicer said is if you put a 20% tax on that, that is something that the president is discussing, that would easily raise the $10 billion that is necessary in one year to pay for the wall. they say they are in discussion with the leaders here on capitol hill about that. whether or not that would backfire. of course then companies that are building goods and making goods to mexico would increase the price to compensate for that. would the prices be passed on to consumers? who knows. it's early in conversation. nonetheless it's floated out there. talked about and debuilted on capitol hill according to sean spicer. that has prompted even more debate.
